    Another outstanding meal at Idylwood Grill. My companion and I started by sharing the calamari appetizer which was great. We were left in peace to enjoy it without being pushed to order entrees. The owner came by our table and sat with us for a few minutes-- nice personal touch. Entrees were excellent as always, but with the generous portions we were too full for dessert. Service was attentive but not pushy.

    I have been going to Idylwood Grill since they opened in 2005. The food is excellent and reasonably priced. The wait staff and managers are knowledgeable and very helpful. It is a wonderful neighborhood place that should be discovered by others outside of the Pimmit/Falls Church area.

    Enjoyed the shrimp ajo appetizer; scallop/ risotto and crab cake/ rigatoni entrees; and German chocolate cake. All flavorful. Great friendly service; helpful and there when you needed them but not overly so. They had a man playing keyboards and the decor made the evening comfortable. Enough space between tables to not worry about sharing air.

    Most of the online menu items were not available, including my top 4 choices. Later, patrons at the table next to me complained about the same issue and were served the meals I was told were unavailable. I will not eat here again

    Quiet little restaurant in Falls Church that I never would have found without OpenTable. Excellent food, wait staff, and dining experience. Not like all those noisy chain restaurants. Had the blackened scallops and eggs benedict atop filet mingon -Wonderful. Only complaint I have is that the OpenTable website didn't update Idlwood's hours to show they were open on Mother's Day. I panicked and thought I didn't have a reservation.

    This was our first time at Idylwood Grill. I found it on open table and took a chance and so glad we did. Both my husband and I loved our meals I got blackened scallops and my husband got the seafood pasta. FYI - I don’t normally write reviews but the food was great! We will definitely be going back.

    Went for Easter brunch. The food was really good and prices reasonable, as we have come to expect at this small strip mall restaurant. Food arrived very quickly. They may have been a little short staffed as it was hard to get our server's attention to get the check. Bread was only offered about 5 minutes after the entree was served but arrived hot and good. Decor is pleasant, with many paintings. Tablecloths are plastic but look like linen from a distance, giving the place a somewhat more formal and warmer feel than many of the newer places with bare tables and lots of hard surfaces.

    Great place for anniversary. Food was very good. Would like to see some vegetable sides and more wine or sparkling wine options. Live music on Friday and Saturday night and dimmed light make it a cozy night out.

    Made a reservation there on a Saturday night for a party of 8 including children. I had never been there before so its location in a small strip mall was a bit off putting, but once you are inside it's like a different world. The table was ready even though we arrived early, host and waitresses were very accommodating. the food was spectacular. Even though the place was full by the time we left you could still have a conversation and the service never wavered. Highly recommended.

    Varied menu (fish, beef, chicken, lamb, seafood, pasta), food was well-prepared and plated, service was prompt and appropriately attentive. Menu seems unfocused (is it French? Is it Italian?) and desserts are uninspired despite being made in house.
